Drew created a state-of-the art, highly successful business manufacturing custom industrial baskets, shelves and hooks from the small bagel basket company in Baltimore that he bought in 1998. Today, his products are exported to approximately 25 countries worldwide and support a growing number of good-paying, high-skilled jobs. Drew's extraordinary energy, expertise and leadership on the National Association of Manufacturers' (NAM) Executive Committee have been tremendously valuable in our efforts to make the United States the best country in the world to manufacture, to innovate and to create jobs.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce congratulates Drew Greenblatt, President of Marlin Steel, for being recognized as one of Maryland's International Business Leaders by the World Trade Center Institute in Baltimore, MD. Marlin Steel exports to over 20 countries and Mr. Greenblatt understands the importance of international trade and the impact it can have on small business. Last April, Drew testified on behalf of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce before the U.S. House of Representatives Small Business Committee on Evaluating the Impact of Small Business Trade Policy on Job Creation and Economic Growth. He explained: "America cannot have a growing economy or lift the wages and incomes of our citizens unless we continue to reach beyond our borders and sell products, agricultural goods, and services. After all, 95% of the world's population lives outside the United States. We want to sell to them." Drew's leadership on the importance of international trade is recognized by the business community and he is a very deserving recipient of the International Business Leaders award.

As a fellow member and past president of the Wire Fabricators Association, Drew Greenblatt has been a consistent and highly regarded leader within our industry group. Drew always brings a high level of energy to every discussion and he is rich with ideas. He is a fun guy to be around and I look forward to seeing him at our industry group functions. I know Drew is very committed to manufacturing American made products and to protection of intellectual property rights. He is fair minded but absolutely not afraid to compete. I've always been impressed with the way he has been able to grow his business and with the shear sense of hustle and urgency that he always seems to exhibit with his business. I am glad that I don't have to compete against him!

Drew Greenblatt and his company, Marlin Steel Wire Products, have been very active in the Wire Fabricators Association for quite some time. Drew has sponsored many companies for membership in our organization and has motivated others to do the same. He is a man of his convictions and always proves that there is a better way to do things; status quo is simply not acceptable. During his presidency, Drew implemented numerous member services that did nothing but make our organization stronger. He continually thinks outside the box and always offers suggestions to raise the bar for our organization and our member companies. He is a team player and works hard to not only increase the respect and visibility for his company, but for other wire fabricating companies, the Wire Fabricators Association and the industry as a whole. I can think of no other company or individual more deserving of this honor.

As a successful entrepreneur, Drew Greenblatt understands that the ability to pivot to meet changing circumstances is key to success. Greenblatt is the president of Marlin Steel, a manufacturer of steel wire baskets and sheet metal fabrication. He is enthusiastic about the significant role that Tulane has played in his success. “I had a phenomenal experience at Tulane University.”
Greenblatt graduated with an MBA from the A. B. Freeman School of Business in 1991 and, using expertise he gained at Tulane, wrote a business plan for a security company that he wanted to buy. He then reached out to the Tulane alumni network, and a bank where a Tulane alumnus was the commercial lending officer lent him the money he needed to purchase the company. In less than three years, Greenblatt tripled the company’s revenue, and sold it for five and a half times what he paid.
“I attribute credit to Tulane for hugely helping me think strategically, prepare a compelling business plan and help guide my approach to finance and organizational behavior.”
Marlin Steel manufactures materials handling and cleaning baskets, sheet metal fabrications, wire forms, and machined products for aerospace, automotive, medical, pharmaceutical, industrial, and military applications.
